NYSF is fortunate in the support it garners from the state governors across the country, who kindly host our students at receptions, where possible, as part of our Orientation activities. These receptions acknowledge the work the students have done to date and their achievement on being selected for the NYSF, reflecting the importance of science education and learning to our wider community. Invited representatives from NYSF funding partners also attended the receptions in each state.
This year, our NSW students were privileged to be welcomed by the outgoing Governor of New South Wales, Her Excellency Professor The Honourable Dame Marie Bashir AD CVO in one of her last official events, and in South Australia, newly appointed Chair of the NYSF, Professor Tanya Monro attended the reception held by the incoming Governor of South Australia, His Excellency the Honourable Hieu Van Le AO.
We extend our thanks to all involved in hosting these receptions, including parents and teachers who ensure the students can attend, and the staff at each Government House.
